Gadgets & Tools
The tech tools you use at your firm ultimately come down to personal preference. Instead of debating on which is better - Mac or Windows - here's the breakdown for both.
If you're running off Apple, we recommend using a combination of their products because of how well all Apple devices work together.
- iMac: Your desktop computer for the office
- MacBook Pro: The perfect laptop for the traveling attorney.
- iPad Pro: Great for taking case notes during client meetings and more.
- iPhone Xs: Need to get some work done while on-the-go? the iPhone X is your go-to for typing out a quick note.
- Airpods: Hands-free client phone calls without the bulky headset.
